Suggest disregarding the 1 star rating of mwidunn1
Who is evidently unaware of the fact that neither the Jews nor the "Church" (presumably meaning Roman Catholic??) had any such "canon" and they would both be different "canons" in any case. Also the Greek Orthodox of course used the Septuagint, but the Catholic discarded it in favour of the Vulgate, so...
I cannot rate the document on experience, but to balance out this appalling and ridiculous rating for the reasons given I will assign a 3 at least. There are of course other volumes like Brenton LXX which include the Apochrypha and if that is what you want instead, go for it. I recommend considering the Septuagint for the fact that it is the most oft quoted text family in the New Testament and resolved many textual issues that arose from the Latin Vulgate "fudging" of Hebrew readings which did not match the LXX, inherited in many English translations to this day. It was also for the most part the Old Testament of the early church.

Not the LXX . . .
This is not the full Septuagint. Rather, it is someone's bowdlerization of it, because he or she can't accept that Jews and, then, the Church accepted a longer canon of the Old Testament before, during, after the time of Christ. Thumbs down.

This interlinear, as all interlinear translations are, is good for basic speed reading of the LXX. If one wants some sort of critical apparatus, then one could use:
